Are there any other thoughts or stories from people who were on hold over a month and then contacted the firm? My friend doesn't know what to say because he doesn't have any deadlines that he can use to prod the firm to make a decision.
Is this 6 weeks post callback? Did they actually tell him he's on hold, and its been six weeks since then?
Six weeks since the callback, and he has not contacted them at all. I think it's over, but his only shot now is to contact them. Small chance, but I feel that it's better than none.
IMO, 6 weeks with absolutely no contact means it doesn't look good for your friend. As I said earlier in the thread, I'm of the opinion that if the firms is seriously considering you, they'll let you know something
before a month passes. At this point, your friend should probably contact them, but the chances of him coming away with anything but a rejection are slim.
